I can't believe it's almost one month since my last update. Once again blogging has taken a backseat as I was busy with work, kid and renovation! Yep, going to have a minor reno to my kitchen and toilets and the exciting part is, I'm going to have a dry kitchen for baking! Yippeee! It's going to take 2-3 months and I seriously can't wait! I'm temporarily putting up at my MIL's place, and missing baking badly :( I guess I could make use of this period to get my blog up-to-date?
Anyways, this was a trip taken way back in Nov 2012. Hubby and I (and the kiddo) were invited to attend a wedding lunch at Segamat on a Sunday, so we reckoned we could do a stayover at Melaka on Sat and then make our way to Segamat the next day.
I had been waiting to stay at Casa Del Rio Melaka for the longest time and this was the perfect opportunity. It's located just next to Jonker Street which is really convenient. We were also pleasantly surprised that the hotel has an underground car park. Parking is usually a problem especially at Jonker Street area, so this time we didn't have to worry.
After the check-in procedures were completed, we were shown to our deluxe river room.
Side table and couch.
Study/work desk with stationary, magazines and books.
We could see the famous Melaka attractions - Maritime Museum & Naval Museum and Melaka Menara Taming Sari (Taming Sari Tower).
Overall, the room was well-appointed and so cozy that we couldn't bear to leave the next day.
Do-it-yourself salad bar, very limited veggies though.
"Big breakfast" cooked-to-order. Love the sour dough bread especially!
I must say that the breakfast spread was quite sumptuous. In fact, didn't even need to order anything from the menu as the self-service spread was substantial enough.
The pool staff was very friendly and even served us watermelon and water even though we were just taking a look at the pool and view.
Overall, we were very satisfied with the room furnishings, quality and service level of the hotel, and I believe this will be our choice of accommodation the next time we visit Melaka.
